Today the energy of greed has come into play in my life. So I thought why don’t I do a blog post on it so that is what I am doing now. Todays post will only be about greed and it might be a bit late because of how bad the Wi-Fi is at our hotel so you might be getting two posts in one day!
The Taxi Driver
Today we decided to go to the grandmother and grandfather rocks (Hin Ta and Hin Yai) down the beach we didn’t know weather we could walk there or not so I asked the women that looked after our hut and she said that we need to get a taxi. So we did that we walked down the road and found a taxi we hopped in one and off we went. The Journey was only about 10 minutes; we got out of the car and the taxi man said
“You pay 100 Baht (£2) and I will wait here for you!” We thought ‘oh that will be good’ so we went and looked at the rocks the women one was amazing it was like a yoni and then we looked and the mans one it looked like a lingham but it had no energy I couldn’t feel it at all. This is the story of how they got there it is really interesting.
The Hin Ta Hin Yai legend is a tale of tragedy tinged with hope, as described on a signboard near the rocks: “A folklore of Samui island tells the story of an old couple by the name of Ta Kreng (Grandpa Kreng) and Yai Riem (Grandma Riem) who lived with their son in the southern province of Nakhon Si Thammarat. Since their son had come of age, they felt that it was time he got married. They set their sights on a union with the daughter of Ta Monglaai, who lived in neighboring province of Prachuap Khiri Khan, about 400 kilometers to the north. One day they decided to set off by boat to press their suit. During their sea journey, the boat was seized by a storm just off Lamai bay, Koh Samui. The old man and his wife were unable to swim ashore. They died at sea, turning into rocks as proof to the would-be bride’s parents of their true intentions. The rocks stand there to this day.”
Hin Ta and Hin Yai have been a source of mirth and wonder on the island since they were discovered. They now form sculptures of male and female genitals creating humorous interests from foreign as well as local tourists due to their fascinating formations.
We were also feeling pressured by the taxi man my mum was trying to meditate and he was telling us to follow him. So we started walking back to the taxi! We said
“We want to go to the view point.” He pointed at the taxi so we knew he meant meet me there. We got up and it was dead dangerous but you could see the whole beach it was a cool view. You could also do a cable ride off there. We then saw a hotel that we once tried to get water off we had walked up here. We were trying to find a way up on that day and we thought we couldn’t get there. We were both annoyed!
We started to walk back to the taxi and there the man was sat on someone else’s motorbike it kind of confused me. Anyway we got in the taxi and again the journey went by quick until he said
“I go an get petrol you pay for it and that is the amount for the journey; he then stated you have big bank I don’t.” It was 500 Baht (£10) we could of got a taxi to the airport for that ridiculous. We were really annoyed at ourselves for not thinking of walking and also at the man for being greedy. I told him that this was our hotel. He stopped and said
“Bye!” As you would guess we were annoyed but we knew that it was his karma. We have learnt a very valuable lesson today and we will not make the same mistake as we have today. Karma is when you do something bad to another or you get something for free you may get consequences for doing that or even simpler what you give you recieve it is like a boomerang; if you cheat you get cheated on if you bully you get bullied..
